Why would unions be against Wal-mart? After all they are selling any Chicom junk that can be shipped over here. Union folks are ungratefull wenches. Don't they remember how the Communist Party did it's best to bring them into the forefront. Now they bitch.

Walmart should be a socialist's paradise, but because it's not owned and run by government, it is technically a triumph of capitalism.
So they hate it, and it has to go....

The whole thing is about Union bosses getting cut off from what they see is a pot of gold.
Never mind that Walmart is the #1 inflation fighter in the U.S. and allows an increased standard of living for their customers plus forces competitive pricing pressure upon other retailers and manufacturers.
The biggest success story in retailing does not sit well with those Union bosses left empty handed and with empty pockets.

There's a congressman from MA, Mike Capuano (D) who has been on local talk radio SCREAMING for a boycott of Wal-mart because the workers are not unionized, the man made a fool of himself on the radio, very entertaining, good radio!

(What do you like best about your life?)
It's interesting to note how they attack Walmart, who employs LEGAL residents and citizens who pay taxes....but don't say a word about employers who hire illegals and pay them less than minimum wage - all under the table.
The same can be said about the NEA and their so-called "boycott" of Walmart. Where is the outcry from these groups against all the illegal, untaxed, Indentured labor?
